  I see in that NY Daily News article KC is referred to as the "matriarch of our work family" by a colleague at the NY Library.  She was the matriarch of the board in my mind.  I eventually upped my grammar game after seeing her meticulously well-written posts.  Throughout the years I always enjoyed talking to KC and reading her thoughts on Eastwood movies  - and anything else really.  I figured one day on a trip to New York I'd happen to be near the library and I'd stop in and say hello.  I'm really sad that I'll never get that chance.  She was an awesome person in so many ways, and had a seemingly tireless energy and a rare "renaissance woman" varied skillset.  Even in the somewhat limited capacity (via the board) in which I knew her, I'm still lucky to have known her.

  Judging by that slideshow she has a wonderful family.  Really sorry to hear this news.  RIP MGK

Every Which Way But Loose...I still enjoy this, but I need a few years between me and another viewing.

I'm aware of the odds based on what you are saying, but I still hope you get that chance at another viewing in a few years. 

I've always enjoyed reading your posts Raewyn, and I'm very sorry to hear the awful news.

Have a good birthday Matt!

...Had a nightmare ordeal with Frontier Airlines. Has anyone else flown them before? I've heard some awful stories, so I think mine isn't really even that bad.

Heard awful stories as well, but never flown them.  My least favorite small-time U.S. domestic airline is American Eagle, though there are some small airlines in Asia that are ten times worse.

McLaglen was a boxer in real life and has a huge fight scene with John Wayne in "The Quiet Man", which I remember.

He was apparently also in a Rawhide episode with Clint.

I bought a few copies of "Strange Brew".  A little while back I was in Canada and met two younger Canadian friends-of-friends that had never heard of this movie.  Yes, actual Canadians that were unaware of "Strange Brew" and even Rick Moranis himself.  I was so angered by this that I bought Blu-rays and sent them each a copy, and snagged one for myself.

I don't like it when a "message" sneaks in a movie.
This movie has one  :( rejection has nothing to do with the message's subject.

What was the message?

It annoys me when there is a message awkwardly shoehorned into a movie or it overrides everything in an "after school special" kind of way.  I don't mind subtlety or if a message or two is smoothly blended in that doesn't hit me over the head.

Everybody Wants Some

If you grew up in the 80s/90s, you will really like "Everybody Wants Some"...and if you didn't, you will still enjoy it as a funny, "easy" movie.  The Director, Richard Linklater, got serious for a while and focused on good, though mostly serious, dramas.  He basically made a spiritual sequel to "Dazed and Confused" with this flick.  There isn't really a protagonist-antagonist, or real drama, or even a main plot per se; its just a bunch of cool college students having a blast over the course of a weekend.  Its hilarious, and has some brief-but-interesting little subplots for each character.  The production design is perfect, there is a disco club called "The Sound Machine" in the movie which has to be coolest place ever put on film.

  You can watch it on Google Play or Youtube.  I think it was like 4 bucks on either option.

  Brace yourself; its not a first date movie.

  I just watched "Outlaws and Angels", and I'd say there is much more of the former in this movie.  It is one of the darkest flicks I've seen in a long time.  The plot was pretty good, and the acting (despite some bad old school Southern accents, Chad Michael Murray grumbles more than talks) is decent all-around.  Francesca Eastwood is fantastic, maybe the best performance in the movie.  There were some spaghetti western influences like the camera zooming in on facial expressions, scenery shots, and some sphagetti-ish music but I wouldn't say its a traditional western.

  My biggest gripe is that it tries to hard to be dark for darks sake, if you know what I mean...Like a contrived "everybody must be full-on evil" dark.  Still, I'd rate it as decent because of the solid plot and characters, and say it's worth a watch.

But then they show Clint and Charlie inside... and it looks like they're trying to decide on a radio station. WTF?


They appear to be bored. 

That is probably the most ridiculous still from a Clint movie that I've ever seen.  It looks like its from a Michael Bay flick, though Bay would at least instruct his actors to sell the giant explosion behind them.

"Moon" is amazing.  Sam Rockwell's acting in that movie was about as close to perfect as it can get.

I won't rush out to see "Warcraft", but I'll check it on when it's on Netflix or something like that.

That's a tough one for an Eastwood fan...I'll go with:  The Man With No Name

Who has the better overall body of work in Clint Eastwood movies?

Stuntman/Director Buddy Van Horn


Production Designer/Art Director Henry Bumstead
